The Storyline
No. 9 Humber women's soccer (2-0, 2nd Central) returns to the pitch on Wednesday to take on Conestoga (0-2, 4th Central) at Budd Park Field. Match time is set for 6 p.m.

Last Time Out
At its 23rd OCAA home opener, Humber cruised to a 6-0 victory over the visiting UTM Eagles (0-2, 6th Central). Giulia Zanardi got the Hawks on the board in the second minute, scoring her second goal of the season. Over the next ten minutes, Humber found the back of the net three more times, with two tallies from Zoe Longsworth and another from Nicole Lyon.

In the 38th minute, Fatima Fuentes-Martinez – playing in her 21st regular season cap with Humber – scored her first career goal.

Scouting Conestoga

  • Conestoga has struggled offensively to begin the season, failing to record a shot on net through its first two matches.
  • Jessica Burgess – Conestoga's keeper – has made 15 saves this season, seventh most in the OCAA.
  • The Condors have lost their top-five scorers from last season – who combined to score 23 of the teams 26 goals.
  • The Hawks are 8-0 all-time in the regular season at Conestoga.

Previous Meeting
Humber escaped with a 1-0 win last time these two teams met, thanks to the late game heroics of Hayley Mackie. In the 70th minute, Mackie scored the match winner from deep, securing the win against a team coached by her father, Peter Mackie.
